Stockton Town U18s will play host to Ryton & Crawcrook Albion in the FA Youth Cup Preliminary Round on Wednesday 1 September – 7:45pm kick-off.
Manager Liam Cox takes his side into the new season having led the Young Anchors to the JPL National Cup Final during the 2020/21 season.
Five members of last season’s squad have made the step up to the first-team, with Keelan Wright, Sam Conway, Alfie Conway, Louie Hall and Gary Mitchell all signing with Michael Dunwell’s side.
Cox will be hoping for a good run in the competition, and the winner of the tie between the Young Anchors and Ryton will be at home to Workington or Bishop Auckland in the First Qualifying Round.
Supporters can come and watch the game, with admission costing £2 for adults and £1 for concessions.
